I know Picotee and Sea shells were on sale in Wilkinsons last spring - don't think they are difficult to get hold of. Check out the seed catalogues this winter and GC's etc next spring.

Unknown apple variety

Cooking apples are usually green in my experience. Best thing is to cut a fallen apple and taste it. I usually juice our glut of apples or cook them.

Any ideas for an entry.....

Plant problems

Both plants seem to be producing new shoots which look healthy. It could be a combination of things - the move, the watering regime - too much can be as bad as too little, the weather conditions...

The hydrangea is in the ground so I would think the leaf damage has been caused by either the wind or the scorching of the sun, otherwise I think it looks fine.

The buddleja has flowered and may be running out of steam. The new growth looks fine and the old growth will die back. It is more likely to be affected by watering and it likes to be on the dry side...probably could do with a bigger pot and a good feed next year if you are not planting it in the ground.

I see what you mean...I think of crocuses and crocrosmia as corms as they grow new baby corms on top and potatoes and dahias as tubers as you say longer and larger. Always heard the term 'tuberous' begonias and assumed they were all tubers...
